Anti-Perspirant and Cancer Risk
Some time ago, I attended a Breast Cancer Awareness seminar put on by Terry
Birk with support from Dan Sullivan. During the Q&A period, I asked why the
most common (and what seemed to be deadliest) area for Breast Cancer was
near the arm pit. My question could not be answered at that time. This
email was just sent to me, and I find it interesting that my question has
been answered. I challenge you all to re-think your everyday use of a
product that could ultimately lead to a terminal illness. Precaution? I
certainly hope so. A friend forwarded this to me. I showed it to a friend
going through chemotherapy and she said she learned this fact in a support
group recently. I wish I had known it 14 years ago. I just got information
from a health seminar that I would like to share. The leading cause of
breast cancer is the use of anti- perspirant. A Concentration of toxins that
leads to cell mutations: a.k.a. CANCER.
Yes, ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an
anti-perspirant/deodorant combination so go home and check your labels.
Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not. Here’s why: The human body has a
few areas that it uses to purge toxins; behind the knees, behind the ears,
groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of
perspiration. Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you
from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below
the armpits. These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body
deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them
out. Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of
the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located.
*Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to develop
breast cancer prompted by anti-perspirant usage because most of the
anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not directly applied
to the skin. Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase
the risk further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the
skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area.
PLEASE pass this along to anyone you care about. Breast Cancer is becoming
frighteningly common. This awareness may save lives. If you are skeptical
about these findings, I urge you to do some research for yourself. You will
arrive at the same conclusions, I assure you. Thank you.
